Once again a Carry On by any other name
11 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a pleasure to watch, there is nothing too taxing about it as it just trundles along at a pace which is so easy on the senses. It`s jokes and punchlines are in the tradition that is `Carry On` but are neither vulgar nor too much double entendre. Juliet Mills is truly beautiful as Nurse Catty she shines through every frame of the film. If you are a fan of the `Carry On` genre and you have not yet seen this movie then go all out to see it, you won`t regret it.
